Still Waters Run Deep

Lyrics

(Copyright © Jardinere 1976)

There goes the mystery woman, keep well away,
She's got trouble for you, so don't get in her way
Nothing to spare
She's standing there, all dressed up in black

With you life sewn up while she's out on a limb
Say she'd better own up or she'll never win
She's out of line, kick her when she's down
Queen of her kind but she doesn't wear the crown

The darkness it grows and the lady does not sleep

It's so hard to lose and now it's so hard to weep
And the river flows, still waters still run deep

She has a thorn in her side, a chip on her shoulder
Some heartache to hide, a lot of people to scold her
No one comes near to set her free
They all live in fear, thinking it's no place to be

There goes the mystery woman, keep well away
She's got trouble for you, so don't get in her way
Nothing to spare, as easy as that
She's standing there, all dressed up in black

Though they may know the sun shines while they sleep
Though they may show a smile but wish to weep
The river flows, still waters still run deep

Though they may know the sun shines while they sleep
Though they may show a smile but wish to weep
The rivers may flow, still waters still run deep
